This from Mark the Pin in Cleveland: “Just saw a Browns conference with John Dorsey and Freddie Kitchens showing Kitchens’ 1st meeting as a head coach. I like it with both those guys at the top. I have that feeling once again as a kid taking the bus down to the Municipal Stadium to sell programs, while making a few extra bucks and watching the games gratis (when we were the best team in the league with Jim Brown) that I will be watching the best once again this season. Only now every time when I pass my desk there is a copy of the Playbook Football Preview Guide magazine with Baker Mayfield staring right at me. They lack Jimmy Brown on the team, but I am in … all in with that good feeling in my gut about the Browns this season.” Editor’s note: Mark the Pin and I are lifelong best friends. We sold scorecards together at the Browns and Indians games at the stadium as kids growing up together in Cleveland.

Grinding Out The Profits
Not only is St. Louis 6-1 on Mondays this season, Cardinals hurler Miles Mikolas sports a 2.48 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP at home as opposed to a 7.68 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP away this season. On the flip side, Pittsburgh’s Joe Musgrove is 0-3 in his career team-starts at Busch Stadium. You know the deal.
